Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 1868 comments Do you have a potential list? Snacks? I love seeing peoples' lists!

Diane Shea (diane_shea) | 23 comments I'm trying to finish off my currently reading list of:

In the Vines by Shannon Kirk
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut (p.s. Super weird book. I am not sure how I feel about it.)

And if there's still time, I'm thinking I'll start Daughter of Smoke & Bone. We shall see how things go.

As for snacks, I don't really have many as I am on a diet, so I'm thinking I will be taking breaks to do some low-key exercise instead.

Diane Shea (diane_shea) | 23 comments I have finished In the Vines by Shannon Kirk! I am laid-up in bed with bronchitis and pleurisy (chest wall inflammation), so I have nothing better to do than read.

Liz (lizgotauco) | 38 comments I am putting off my muscle relaxer as long as possible because I know I'll have to conknout soon after!

Also a fellow popcorn fan. Is it a bad sign that I already need some??
